Online Video Lectures and Classes in Marxian Theory by Richard D. Wolff, UMass Amherst

In addition to the video lectures, class readings are linked in these free online courses. Prof. Wolff has a clear and accessible style. A great way to learn about Marx's theories.

Marxian Class Analysis Theory and Practice Online Course - Run time: 7 hours 45 minutes (in 5 parts)
There are two basic purposes of this intensive class taught by Professor Wolff at the Brecht Forum in New York city in the Spring of 2010. The first is to teach the specifics of Marxian class analysis (its history, different interpretations, and basic structure). The second is to show in detail how to apply Marxian class analysis and what unique insights it achieves both in terms of understanding society and strategizing for social change.

Economic Crisis and Globalization - Run time: 10 hours, 30 minutes (in 8 parts)
This eight session lecture series, from Spring 2009, is taught by Dr. Wolff, in the context of the same name graduate course, offered by the Graduate Program for International Affairs (GPIA) of the New School University in New York. Not only does Dr. Wolff challenge the conventional thinking of the crisis, he provides one of the central frames which links all of our projects: the role and influence of capital as a structuring force in our daily lives

Marxian Economics: An intensive introduction - Run time: 7 hours (in 4 parts)
This four part course provides a working foundation in the core concepts of Marxian economic theory – necessary and surplus labor, labor power, surplus value, exploitation, capital accumulation, distributions of the surplus, capitalist crises, and the differences between capitalist and other class structures. In addition, these core concepts will be systematically used to understand current social problems (including political and cultural as well as economic problems). The goal is to enable students to apply Marxian economics in their own efforts to analyze society and to strategize politically today.

This course was taught in the Spring of 2010 at the Brecht Forum in New York.
